Peter is a sex trafficker and a character in Taken.

He is portrayed by Nicolas Giraud.


Peter was a young French man who spent his days finding attractive young female tourists from the Paris Airport and then got them to share a cab. He then figured out their address, invited them to a party, got their location, and figured out if they were with anybody else. At that point, he relayed the information to thugs who kidnapped the women and sold them into sexual slavery.

Peter made a grave mistake when he went after Kim Mills and her friend, Amanda, which led to his death. He did his usual routine but after Kim was kidnapped, her vengeful father who was once a CIA Agent, tracked Peter down through a photo that he had taken, where his reflection was visible in a window in the background of the picture. Bryan then remembered his face and found Peter attempting to swindle a young tourist from Stockholm, Sweden. Bryan pushed Peter into a taxi and attempted to beat the information out of him, which resulted in several of his ribs getting broken and many muscles in his abdomen were pulled. Bryan ordered the driver to start driving, but the driver fled and alerted security. Bryan threatened to sink a punch right into Peter's lung, but was attacked by Peter's partner, whom Bryan promptly killed after he throat-chopped him, which crushed his windpipe. Bryan then chased Peter in the stolen taxi, but Peter jumped off an overpass and was hit by a passing truck, which killed his only lead. Bryan walked away, and was unsure of what to do next.


Peter was a charming, helpful, and seemingly-innocent man who was extroverted and chivalrous. However, those traits existed only to assist him in getting information that lead him to obtain women for sexual slavery. When not directly associating with the girls, he was calculating and quick. As shown in his chase with Bryan, Peter was a skilled runner, but when he got too stressed, he made grave errors in judgement.
